I’ve heard of people replicating MySQL from coast to coast. I’d love to hear if anyone attending @lfnw has longer replication runs. Happy to share some examples at my talk on Sat. http://linuxfestnorthwest.org/sessions/mysql-performance-and-availability
The vast number of filesystems, distributed file systems, and network replication schemes available for Linux all come with learning curves and caveats. When does one actually want to avoid merely picking out an average SAN solution and go with a Linux oriented distributed storage solution like Gluster or NFS on DRBD?
